The game is clever, however I wouldn't really call it a mind-numbing scary thriller. It's actually much more funny than scary, plenty of lollable moments (like with the cookie and the monkey).

With that being said, I gotta say that the controls are a tad bit difficult, at least from my angle. To click and hold using the mouse and or keyboard is a tad bit tedious, let alone to toss the ball. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to accurately toss the ball. I couldn't progress any further than the [spoiler] play with the monkey [/spoiler] part, due to me not being able to toss the ball.


If you're gunna make this a full fledge game, it would be very helpful if controller support was released, of which would solve this indefinately. 

Also, without a pause feature means even if I have to do something else (run to answer door, restroom, ect.) makes things inconvenient.

Pros: Entertaining, good voice acting, interesting

Cons: Considered a scary psycological terror, moreso a funny charming time passer

without a health meter or any actual danger this is simply a walking simulator with cool effects, controls can be hindering, plot is too linear.


Somethings to add on would be a better way to have flexible controls, make the space button the throw button.

You should incorporate some morality choices, my suggestion is to, not exactly make like "Saw-styled" choices, but moreso choices that are simple, but in the plot are more harder than it looks---Like obeying a command could hurt somebody else, or disobeying could be helpful, but we risk punishment. This leaves players to struggle to predict which shennanigan the japanese voice will subject them to next, whether we'll get a mind numbing choice that affects others, or whether it'll be a random command that just doesn't make sense.


Maybe add a bit of Alicec in Wonderland styled hallucinations that keep us on our toes, to have us slowly struggle to know real from reality.


Anyway, this is Gregory Thomas, Everybody's Favorite Uncle, author of the science fiction dystopian novel Chronologue, sharing thoughts. ^~^

Never have I been reduced to a cookie before haha the game's concept is very simple, but seemingly DEEP! Like there's soo much going on just outside the four concrete walls. I love the mechanics with the vision and walking. Taking the time to add in minuscule details like that speak so loudly during gameplay. I'm definitely interested if you expand on this, Pombero, or whatever is next!

Great work!

This game was very well made, the ending scared the crap out of me, did not see it coming at all. I can't wait to play the finished product, and am definitely looking forward to your future projects!

i have attempted to download this game however i came across a message saying it may put my pc at risk? i see other youtubers play this game but i just want to ask if its safe and trusted? if so, it looks like a very well developed game.

I don't know what it is you've done but this is one of the creepiest games I've ever played. Really unique, incredibly restrained. Perfect balance of mystery and psychological horror.

Super interesting idea.  Are we ever going to get a full game out of this demo or is this only part of "something bigger"? On the website I see there's also another game, Pombero, currently in progress. Are they both part of the same project?

(Your game begins at 9:09)

Starting out merely a bit puzzling and quickly turning very uncomfortable with very little, Sentient is definitely one of the strangest experiences I've had checking out indie horror games in a good while. At worst, I would say the adjusting the focus gets a littel cumbersome at times, and you have to stand fairly specifically to be able to read the commands asa result, but this is a minor nitpick. Very interesting experience for sure!

one of the most creepiest games ive played in a while.. F*ck that monkey btw

I tried to share my ball but i think it got stock in the vent... Now i have to start over.

I have a theory about this teaser (SPOILER ALERT AHEAD)

The "Neighbor" (or the monkey) is actually your body, and we are playing as our mind/soul. As a game about a science unit studying the embodiment of "sentience", they have tested it on a monkey, taking said mind out of the body to study it. Scientist often test on monkeys, you know. The question on how we are able to move about an dpick up items is a question on its own, but Im not worrying too much about the realism.

But hey, that's JUST A THEORY.

A GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME THEORY!

Doesn't work for mac?

Not available for windows?

Prepare some cookies before you play,trust me :)

didnt work for me, wouldnt open etc

This game was such a mental experience! Hope to see it fully fleshed out! Also if you don't wanna see the first game and came for the juicy gameplay of this game but jump right to 9:14!

I'm curious to see where the game is taking me. There's a bigger story to this. Can't wait for the full game!

I love the logic sequence about happiness and cookies about halfway through. The dynamic focus is great, but it's a bit too much when you're holding an item and trying to move around. The environment is super detailed, and I think you're doing good work. Keep it up!
